The band’s sophomore album “Joy As An Act of Resistance” released in 2018 debuted at number five on the UK charts and received huge plaudits. Their blend of politics, passion and tackling of patriarchal norms saw the band get rocket strapped to the forefront of music’s consciousness with no signs of slowing down since.

The band’s latest release “Mercedes Marxist” will be available in physical form on August, 2nd as a 7″. The single will include another new song on its B-side, entitled “I Dream Guillotine.” Both tracks were written and recorded during the band’s sessions for “Joy as an Act of Resistance.”
